This is a comedy with an edge about a world-famous cellist, Jascha Steg, in love with Ana, a violinist. Jascha's world tour with a Schumann concerto brings him to perform a concert in Evian. His parents, whom he has not seen for a long time, have come with his uncle to see him perform. But Jascha has no peace of mind because Ana is there with her husband. Two days spent by a lake, and a picnic in the mountains when all the characters reveal the most hidden aspects of their personalities, drastically transform his life and consequently his art. The film reflects the difficulties confronted by an artist when he tries to reach people close to his heart. Veterans Philippe Noiret and Carole Bouquet carry their roles with conviction.
